Pine Needle Holiday Ornament & Mini Basket Making | Ages 12+
Grab a friend and let’s have some holly jolly fun as we create stunning Pine Needle Ornaments using Long Leaf Pine Needles! Pine Needle coiling was introduced to Turtle Island by Native Americans and is still going strong today!
Students will learn the basics of coiling and will leave this workshop with enough supplies to make a 2nd project—a mini Pine Needle Basket. Light refreshments will be served.
All supplies included. TMA members receive 10% off all registrations.
